The answer for the first one is likely very similar to the last. I understand wanting to know if your clothes look okay, but you have to be able to extrapolate from one or two instances and base the rest off of those. Nobody here wants to do that work for you. We all have to do it for ourselves. People are happy to help you do a think once, maybe even twice, but they expect you to start swimming on your own at some point.

 

And if you don't have your shirt tucked in properly in the first place, why post the picture at all?

What is the best way to cover up or remove scoffs from burnished black leather shoes.  Also, what is the best way to polish that kind of leather in general?

Thanks in advance!

Looking for brown (snuff or chocolate) suede chukka recommendations in the $200-$400 range. Rubber (dainite etc) sole, quality suede. 

 

Possibilities:

- AE Gobi @ $177 http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline/producti_SF8998_1_40000000001_-1?style=8998 (Maybe too casual. Uninspired by online photos, but maybe better in real life?)

- Meermin Chukka @ $200 + ship https://www.meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=2792#

- Loake Kempton @ $300 + ship http://www.pediwear.co.uk/loake/products/2514.php

- Carmina 905 @ $400 + ship (MTO) http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/uk-9/products/carmina-905-chukka-in-snuff-suede-group-mto-50-deposit

 

What others am I missing? Suede, quality, etc that much better on Loake / Carmina to justify price increase over Meermin?

Speaking from experience, Meermin's quality control is really spotty. It's very hit and miss. You may get a great pair of shoes, or you may get something with crooked stitching, blotchy leather, and scuffs/scrapes.

Do you not know of SF's Official Shoe Care Thread? Or is there some reason why you do not care to ask your question there?

actually i did a couple days ago, and it went unanswerred there as well.  so i figured, since it's a quick question, i would try it here.  but same result.  so i was wondering if there was a problem with the question...

I think most people are ignoring it just because the answer is relatively simple. Shine your shoes. Use wax, then cream polish. That's really it. Or, you could take them to a cobbler and get them shined. There's not special scuff treatment. Have you googled it?

the main element to the question relates to the fact that they are burnished leather.  they started out real shiny, and then as they got scoffed, they lost a lot of the shine.  since it's the burnished shiny leather, i was wondering if the process for polishing is different....
